NHD 2023-2024 Theme Description

Turning Points in History

To celebrate our 50th anniversary of National History Day (NHD), during the 2023-2024 academic year, students will explore topics relating to the theme Turning Points in History. This year’s theme invites students to consider questions of time and place, cause and effect, change over time, and impact and significance.

A turning point in history is more than just an important event that happened a long time ago. It is more than a new idea or a particular action taken by an individual. A turning point is an idea, event, or action that directly, or sometimes indirectly, causes change.
